Why do "cool kids" choose Ruby or PHP to build websites instead of Java?
I have to admit that I do not have an answer.
Why do I even care? Because I am a Java developer. Like many Java developers,
I get along with Java well. Not only the language itself, but the development
environments (Eclipse for example), step-by-step debugging helper, wide

considerable developer skills, especially when migrating existing
client/server applications to the Web. A new wave of software infrastructure
providers is leveraging Java expertise to create enterprise-caliber Rich
Internet Applications. This session will discuss building and deploying AJAX
(Asynchronous Java + XML) applications using the Java server platform as a
Web 2.0 technologies promise to turn the Internet into a true application
platform, featuring robust client-side logic and rich interfaces that put
users back in control of application flow. For the enterprise IT community,
achieving the aims of Web 2.0 requires looking beyond the adoption of popular
Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) development languages like AJAX, Flash,
Java, and .NET.
Companies looking to implement an Enterprise Web 2.0 (EW2.0) strategy require
a platform that provides standardization and simplification across different
business applications and development ... (more)
Enterprise Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) are the next evolution of
business application development. There are four different approaches to RIA
development - AJAX, Java, Flash, and .NET - and many different RIA solutions
available today. This article answers the following questions: What are
enterprise RIAs? Which approach should you use? Which solutions are
appropriate for you? And how are RIAs being adopted today?
Welcome to a New Paradigm

Why XAP and What Is The Value of Declarative Ajax?
XAP represents a new way of developing, deploying and maintaining Ajax
applications. It uses a declaratiave syntax (XAL, http://www.openxal.org/)
